A NOTE FROM A LRF SUPPORTER TO OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Posted on May 15, 2017 in VOLUNTEER STORIES | 0 comments

“Hi, John.  I’ve recently been reflecting on the various organizations I’ve been involved with and Liberty Road Foundation is one I truly appreciate and would love to support further. I’d like to connect with you to see if I can deepen my involvement with LRF and support the mission. In the four short years since I’ve been introduced to LRF, it has transformed my professional life and helped bridge the gap between my faith and professional work. It has even impacted my relationship with my husband and his ties to the community. I’d love to talk with you to see how I can help...

BUILDERS CAPITAL SERVING MATT TALBOT CENTER SINCE 2012

Posted on Mar 28, 2017 in VOLUNTEER STORIES | 0 comments

Builders Capital in Seattle has been volunteering at our non-profit partner, Matt Talbot Center since 2012, cooking and serving lunch once a month to approximately 40 men and women who are in the free recovery program. “Volunteering has become part of the fabric of our culture at Builders Capital.  I can’t overstate the value it has had on our organization.  From the monthly lunch events at Matt Talbot Center to the annual Ramp-a-thon event at the Master Builders Association, participating with your co-workers to help others in need is the best form of “team building” I’ve ever been associated with.”  Curt Altig, CEO – Builders Capital  Volunteering has been a way for me to have some tangible effect on the communities I am allowed to serve in.  It is different than just giving money to a cause.  Don’t get me wrong; giving money to a cause can be very effective at impacting communities.  But when I volunteer, I get to touch the fabric of the community that I impact.  I get to see the faces of those that I am doing this for and it allows me a glimpse into their lives.  It continually amazes me to see both the hope and the grace of those I get to serve.  Robb Kenyon – Builders Capital Some of us tend to live in a bubble and never get out into other parts of our community, the places that might feel uncomfortable.  But for me, volunteering allows me to immerse myself into the community where they don’t have it as good as I do.  It makes me feel more well rounded, and that I’m actually making a difference in the world.  Louis Howard – Alchemy Real Estate Led by a team of partners who share an entrepreneurial vision, Builders Capital was started in 2009 to fill a niche for builders and real estate investors to meet the growing need for private financing. Their loans help to create quality housing in our communities. Builders Capital is a growing team passionate about residential real estate. They are mortgage bankers, builders, construction lenders, realtors, and accountants. This group of volunteers has been a steadfast group and one that cares about those in our community that can benefit from their expertise to get ahead in life! Their service to those in need is a true blessing to so many in our community!!!

Posted on Mar 28, 2017 in VOLUNTEER STORIES | 0 comments

A team of employees from Timeshare Exit Team prepare and serve breakfast to approximately 40 young teens at a LRF non-profit partner, New Horizons Ministries, in downtown Seattle.  They started volunteering a month ago and had a great first day, learning how the kitchen works and what the procedures are for serving the people who are sheltered there. The team, led by Corporate Office Manager Chelsey Bergley, included all of the company’s different department managers.  Their plan is that each department will take turns serving each month. “So far we have the next 8 months worth of volunteers signed up from each of our departments.  Everyone is so excited to serve.  We are using this opportunity to do some team building.  It’s also part of our company’s mission statement to be of service to our community, and we’re grateful to Liberty Road Foundation for giving us the opportunity to live out our mission statement.”  ~Chelsea Bergley We are so thrilled to have all of them on our Liberty Road Foundation volunteer team! WHO IS TIMESHARE EXIT TEAM: There are 4 main aspects of our business that are driven by our values and respect for our customers:  We are not a listing company.  We do not buy, sell, list, or donate timeshares.  Rather, through negotiations directly with your resort, you legitimately exit your timeshare.  We also offer secure online consultations, allowing you to speak with a Consultant from the comfort of your own home.  If you decide we are the right partner to help you exit your timeshare, we will assign you a personal Account Coordinator who will become your single point of contact during the exit process.  Our service comes with a 100% money back guarantee.  If we don’t succeed at exiting you from your timeshare, you will receive a full refund of your fee.

ARTITUDES DESIGN SERVING THE MATT TALBOT CENTER SINCE 2010

Posted on Feb 4, 2017 in VOLUNTEER STORIES | 0 comments

“Artitudes Design began serving monthly lunches at The Matt Talbot Center in September of 2010.  We learned about The Matt Talbot Center from a Liberty Road Foundation luncheon attended by our former Account Executive.  We were inspired into action by the members and staff at The Matt Talbot Center.  Their individual dedication to the program and one another is inspiring!  It has helped to strengthen the teamwork among our employees as well as encouraged them to give back. We have been blessed with so much, and this is our way of giving back to our community and allows us to see tangible results. Personally, it’s my favorite day of the month!  Everyone at my office knows that, come first Thursday, Carrie will be at The Matt Talbot Center!  Over the past 6 ½ years, I have only missed two months due to my maternity leave.  I cooked 2 days before my wedding and when I was 9 months pregnant.  I have made many personal connections with the staff and members at The Matt Talbot Center.  This is certainly a part of my life in which I am proudest.  Over the years, in addition to my coworkers at Artitudes Design, I have invited my husband, daughter, sister, cousins and many friends to join me in cooking lunch at The Matt Talbot Center because it’s important that I share this part of my life with those around me. A huge shout out to Artitudes Design for sponsoring this program.” Carrie Searing, Executive Assistant Artitudes Design 1445 NW Mall St #2 Issaquah, WA...

AdvoCare, Serving The Matt Talbot Center Since 2012

Posted on Jan 25, 2017 in LIBERTY ROAD FOUNDATION, LRF Faith in Action, NON-PROFIT STORIES, VOLUNTEER STORIES | 0 comments

A team of friends with AdvoCare has volunteered every month since 2012 at the Matt Talbot Center, one of LRF’s 7 non-profit partners, preparing and serving lunch to approximately 40 men and women. “We primarily serve as a function of trying to walk out and be in action with our weekly bible study that started around the same time in 2012. I think there have been two great personal benefits from us serving. -It give us an opportunity to get “outside of ourselves” for a few hours a month and allows us to focus on others. It’s amazing how quickly my spirit of gratitude is strengthened every time I go. I think of all the other people who serve there and the love they have for those who are hurting without judging. It puts my own problems in perspective and forces me to suck it up in my life. -The couple hours a month that we spend together as a group strengthens our bond and helps sharpen each other. It keeps us accountable to living a life that is above reproach. I used to be a big partier and I realize that I’m a fallible human being and one stupid decision away from negatively impacting those that I love and who I’m accountable to.” ~Mike Friedrich “My daughter was able to join me last time, and it’s great to have her experience it with us.” ~Wayne Johnson AdvoCare understands what it means to get the business community involved in the transformation of the lives of those in need. This is not a government issue, this is a community issue, and we are all in it together! AdvoCare’s mission is to help people become healthier, both physically and financially, through mentorship and motivation! This is why they incorporate volunteering as a regular part of their work lives. For more information about AdvoCare, check out their website at www.AdvoCare.com.
